Managing Director of SIC Life Co. Ltd, Mrs Elizabeth Wyns-Dogbe has encouraged all GES staffs to get on board the much touted GES-SIC Life Policy. Speaking with the media at the just ended 2019 Ghana Teacher Prize Award which SIC Life sponsors, Mrs Wyns-Dogbe stated that she believes in the total welfare of the teacher, hence, the introduction of the subsidised Life Insurance Policy.

‘I want to use this platform to encourage all teachers to get involved in the GES-SIC LIFE POLICY…with a monthly premium of GH10 in the unfortunate incidence of death, permanent disability sustained as a result of an accident or an illness, GH₵18,000 will be paid out to a named beneficiary…GH₵9,000 will be paid out to a member upon diagnosis of any of the named critical illness. Critical illness includes cancers, heart attack, kidney failure, loss of sight, stroke, paralysis, deafness,’ Mrs. Wyns-Dogbe explained. 

So far about twenty (20) GES staffs have benefited from the policy. 

In congratulating the winner for the 2019 Ghana Teacher Prize award, Mrs. Wyns-Dogbe revealed that SIC Life for the past nine years has sponsored the award scheme.    

‘SIC LIFE has been sponsoring the Ghana Teacher Prize for the past nine years. We are very keen on education; that explains why we also want to support almost everything related to the sector. We believe the key to a better Ghana is Education. As part of packages for last year’s Ghana Teacher Prize award, SIC Life sponsored a trip to Dubai for participation in the Global Teacher Prize Awards. 

The 2019 Ghana Teacher Prize was held in Kumasi and was under the theme: “Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession”.
